Swim – The swim will be either .25 mile or .93 mile counter-clockwise course, leaving from the sandy shores of Antlers Park. The course will be well marked and easy to follow. Water temps in mid August are normally a comfortable 78 degrees, but wetsuits are legal. In the event that water is 78-84, wetsuits are permitted, but the racer will not be eligible for awards. If water temps are over 84 degrees wetsuits are not permitted.
Bike – The bike course (which runs clockwise) will be a great improvement over years past. 75% of the course features huge shoulders on which to bike. The course rolls gently through the countryside and should be FAST! Sprint distance racers will travel 18.0 miles and Olympic distance racers will go 25.5 miles. All cyclists must observe MN traffic laws. ANSI or SNELL approved hard-shelled helmets are required. Drafting is prohibited.
Run – The run will be modified to stay away from the construction on Hwy 50. We will complete a simple out and back for the 5K route and a double out and back for the 10K route.
Please note: The use of headphones during any part of the race is strictly prohibited.
